Helen Roddis's bio


A biologist and science writer, Helen currently works for the conservation charity Wildscreen as a text author on their ARKive project. She has a degree in Biological Sciences and is also working part time towards a Masters in Conservation Biology – hence her particular enthusiasm for news, stories or discoveries concerning nature, conservation or the natural environment.

Helen likes to spend just as much time adventuring in the great outdoors as she does writing about wildlife and the natural world, and her greatest ambition is to work with penguins in the Antarctic.
